CVS Complaint - Fired When They Found Out I Was Gay
PEORIA, ILLINOIS -- I had worked for the CVS in Peoria, Il for almost 4 years, was a part time employee. The first manager was a great lady, never had aproublem when she found out about my life style, till a new manager took over the store. A Few customers found out and started coming to the store to cause trouble, when they figured out about my life, that is when the death threats came to the store through phone calls. When the new manager was let know, is when the trouble started . I see my partner only on week ends for he comes in to town then, so I was never asked to work weekends, when I came back from being hurt on the job, I was told I would have to work week ends, which I let the manager know about, I was told that was to bad, That he had to work weekends, and did not get to see his wife and kids, so I would just have to deal with it. When I reported it to the cvs hot line, They called and told the store manager that I was not required to work ends due to that I was a part time employees.
They backed off gave me my job back, and then slowly lowered my hours, and then after a great review and raise, was called it to the office and was told by district manager that the store just could not work around my taking time off for planting my crops in the spring time any more. And that was the reason, I was being let go ....
